Oh my! It has been almost two weeks since I posted -- I am so sorry! Rest assured, though, I am sticking to it -- whole-heartedly! I have been walking between 3 and 3.5 miles every day, and walking faster as time goes on, too. I feel great!
I have lost 25 lbs total (actually, a bit more, but since I don't "officially" weigh in again until next Tuesday, we will leave it at 25). Hoorah for me! the best part is that I dropped a size. That is probably really the best thing...
We went to Virginia for Easter to see my sister. I had nothing to wear, so I "forced" my sister to go shopping with me (She is the BEST shopping partner in the entire universe!). I tried on a size smaller than usual, and you know what? The VERY FIRST dress I tried on fit -- and it happens to be the one I have on, above. Don't you just LOVE it when that happens?
Now, the renewal thing. I got my haircut this week. I thought that since I was shedding pounds, a little hair could go, too. I think a good haircut renews the soul, don't you? First, here is a picture of my family taken on Easter:
Now, this is my new haircut....oh, don't you just love self-portraits? LOL -- This is hard to do!
Note to self when taking a self-portrait in the bathroom mirror (um, I kind of struggled with this!!!):
- Don't chew gum and snap the shot.
- Look at the lens.
- Don't take pictures of the bathroom lights.
- Shut the closet door behind you so that no-one can see your mess!
- Look at the lens...
- Untangle the dog from your legs.
- Look at the lens (sigh)
Not the best shot, but you get the idea. Hey! I feel lighter!
I just want to say thank you again to those of you who send me emails...really, I am more motivated every day by your emails and kind words. Thank you for looking over my shoulder and encouraging me, friends!
Now, how are you doing this week?
